The television adaptation will be written by Rememder and Miles Feldsott and executive produced by the Russo brothers. It's a co-production of Sony Pictures TV Studios and Universal Cable Productions. Adam Targum will direct and Lee Toland Krieger will serve as showrunner.
This will be Syfy's fourth adaptation of a comic book property, with the current Wynonna Earp followed in December by Grant Morrison's Happy! and next year by the Superman prequel Krypton.
